LBS-1
(Lowrance Broadband Sounder)
Installation Instructions
The LBS-1 is a digital sonar optimizer designed to enhance sonar echo
clarity. The broadband sounder was created to deliver the most striking
underwater definition possible, with digitally-purified marking, including separation of fish, structure, thermoclines and bottom detail while
minimizing surface and turbulent water clutter.
This document explains how to connect the LBS-1 to a compatible
Lowrance display unit. The broadband sounder connects directly between the transducer and display unit. Read the following instructions
carefully before attempting to install the LBS-1.
Included Components
Ethernet cable
Fuse
holder
Fuse
Power cable
Included with the LBS-1:
• Six-foot (five pin) Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable connects the
LBS-1 to the display unit.
• Six-foot (four pin) power cable. This cable has a connector plug at one
end for connecting to the LBS-1 and 4 wires (red, black, yellow and
blue) on the other end for connecting to the power supply.
• Fuse and fuse holder. The fuse holder connects to the red power cable
wire between the power source and broadband sounder.

Unit Connections and Indicator Lights
The LBS-1 has an Ethernet (ETH) and Power connector on one end and
a Sonar connector on the opposite end. You will need to attach the
power cable, Ethernet cable and a transducer to the broadband
sounder. The transducer is not included. Screws to secure the LBS-1
are also not included. All cable runs should be secured, protected from
physical damage and exposure to heat. Avoid sharp bends in cables and
cable runs through bilges, doorways, moving parts, hot objects or live
wells.
Power and Link Active indicator lights
The Power (PWR) and Link/Active (LNK/ACT) indicator lights are located on top of the broadband sounder. The LNK/ACT indicator light
will remain solid green until communication between the display unit
and broadband sounder begins, then it will start to blink. The PWR
indicator light will turn red to indicate the LBS-1 is receiving power
but not active. The PWR indicator light turns green to indicate the
LBS-1 is powered on and active. If the PWR indicator light is not red or
green, it may mean the unit is not receiving power from the power
source. Check the power cord between the LBS-1 and battery.

It is recommended that the LBS-1 power cable be connected to a separate power source other than the one starting the engine. Doing so will
prevent voltage drop. Voltage drop will not harm the unit but it can
cause the unit to reset. If the LBS-1 resets, some information could be
lost and it may change the operation mode of the unit.
Mounting the Broadband Sounder
The LBS-1 is waterproof to IPX-7 and is designed to work with all 5"
(or larger) Lowrance 2007 (and later) color display units. The display
unit must be equipped with a 5-pin yellow Ethernet connector.

All 2007 and later display units will require a free software upgrade to operate with the LBS-1. Go to www.lowrance.com for
the software upgrade. Select the Downloads option from the
Lowrance website. The Downloads screen will appear. Select
Product Updates. The Product Software Updates screen will appear. Scroll through the Product list and select your unit to
download the software update.
Before installing the LBS-1, consider location and cable runs necessary
to connect the broadband sounder to the display unit and power source.
The broadband sounder should be mounted where it will be protected
from physical damage and excessive vibration. Also, mount the LBS-1
where it will be protected from rain, salt spray, direct sunlight and in
an area that is well ventilated. Do not mount the broadband sounder in
an engine compartment where gas fumes can reach it or on the main
console.
Connecting the LBS-1 between two or more display units requires an optional NEP-1 (Navico Expansion Port). To purchase
the NEP-1 contact your local Lowrance dealer.
The LBS-1 conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC) standards but proper installation is required to get the best use
and performance from this product.
When installing the broadband sounder, certain factors that could affect its operation should be considered. Ensure maximum separation as
possible between different electrical equipment, including the LBS-1. It
is recommended that whenever possible:
• The broadband sounder is at least 5 feet (1.5 m) from any equipment
transmitting radio signals, including VHF radios, cables or antennas.
• The broadband sounder is more than 7 feet (2 m) from the path of any
radar beam.
• Lowrance specified cables are used.
The following diagram shows how the LBS-1 connects to a display unit
and power source. Notice that in this example the yellow wire for the
LBS-1 power cable has a switch (not included) allowing the broadband
sounder to be powered on or off. Check with a local electrical supply
store to purchase a switch. Lowrance does not sell switches.

If the LBS-1 is connected directly to the
battery, the LBS-1 will continue to draw
power even when it is not in operation.
It is recommended that the yellow
power cable wire be fitted with an
on/off switch, allowing it to be powered
off when not in use.

Battery
If the LBS-1 is connected directly to the boat's battery, the
broadband sounder will continue to draw power even when it is
not in operation. It is recommended that the yellow power cable
wire be fitted with an on/off switch, allowing it to be powered
off when not in use.
The LBS-1 is designed for use on a DC power system rated from 9 to 32
volts. Power should be fed directly to the broadband sounder via its
own dedicated power cable and protected using the provided fuse and
fuse holder on the red (positive) wire.
This system is not intended for use on a "positive" ground vessel. The
LBS-1 contains high voltages and specialized parts; the operator should
never remove the broadband sounder's cover or attempt to service the
device.

!
WARNING
Removing the transducer cable from the broadband sounder
while the unit is powered on can cause sparks. Remove the
transducer cable only after the LBS-1 has been disconnected
from its power source.
Display Unit Operation with Broadband Sounder
If you are not familiar with your units display menus, consult the product manual provided with the display unit. When the LBS-1 is properly
connected, and both the display unit and broadband sounder are powered on, a new menu option appears at the bottom of the Sonar menu.
The new Sonar menu option will read "Sonar Source", as shown in the
following image.
Sonar source will need to be selected. Scroll down, highlight Sonar
Source, and press the ENT key. The Sonar Source Setup menu will appear, as shown in the following image.
Highlight LBS-1 from the Sonar Source Setup menu, as shown in the
previous image. Press either the ENT or EXIT key. The sonar source
should now be selected and the LBS-1 and display unit working properly.
